A Sunki.....Halloween......Birthday Witch!

It's been a while but nonetheless here I am...
This week was all about multitasking one outfit. Miss Bella is turning 3 today....
The plan for this week was to do my October FLIP over at Frances Suzanne  because why would I not join in on the fun - I am addicted! The pattern for October was the SUNKI from Figgy's Patterns. It was my first and hopefully not my last. I really like the fit and look of the pattern so I have to sew one without flipping it. So why not go ahead and sew a birthday party outfit and a Halloween costume using this month's flip Pattern.( she is having a Halloween Birthday party ) It worked out great and even though it is her costume all the pieces are versatile that she can use on any day of the week minus the hat of course but who doesn't like to play dress up?
Do you know this book?
It's one of my kids favorites ever since we saw the movie at a neighbor's house. Isabella really wanted to be a witch since seeing it so she was our inspiration for Bella's costume.

The Sunki pattern I shortened the pattern and added a circle skirt. Underneath is a separate skirt made with black net ( 2 layers of circle net with black elastic - she likes to use it as her ballerina skirt.
The leggings are go-to-leggings - oh so easy and very comfy. I see myself sewing up a few for the season. One pattern piece!!!!

I even got a nice pose out of her....

Now for the little cape. It is made from the Audrey cape tutorial   over at Simple Simon and Co.
I absolutely love it. Super easy and easy just to throw around Isabella's shoulder in the winter till we get inside a building over the winter without having to struggle with a jacket on a little girl who doesn't want to wear a jacket. I am thinking one with a hood will be super cute too.

 This is her WITCH laugh!

The witch hat was made with THIS tutorial over at Delia Creates
